I forgot to mention....I was able to take good flying shots of one of  
the Eurasian Teal...no bands. That doesn't prove much, as some bird  
keepers never get around to banding their birds. But being this time  
of year with all the northbound migrating Teal, Pintails and  
Shovelers, I would be less suspicious of escaped birds, the timing is
